Jose Arreguy Killed in Rollover Accident on I-20 Service Road in Ward County, TX

Ward County, TX — January 19, 2023, 67-year-old Jose Arreguy died in a single-vehicle accident on the Interstate 20 North service road in Ward County.

Authorities say the incident happened Thursday along the I-20 North service road. Preliminary investigation suggests Arreguy was driving a Ford F-150 pickup east on the service road when he may have lost control for unknown reasons. The pickup traveled off the road into the south bar ditch and Arreguy allegedly over-corrected, causing the truck to overturn.

Arreguy was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.

One mistake I see made over and over, and one which I try to caution against, is jumping to conclusions after reading just a few sentences in a "breaking" news report. They convey what investigators are able to quickly tell them, but after a once-over at the scene that amounts to little more than a rough timeline of events. Almost inevitably there's more to the story that would need closer, more thorough investigation to uncover.

Take the accident in Ward County, for example: Folks may read what allegedly happened and it was most likely due to some kind of mistake on the driver's part. Is that possible? Sure; operator errors account for quite a few single-vehicle crashes. However, there's a lot of reasons for those and far from all of them are within the victim's control. That's why it's important not to jump to any conclusions before careful investigation discovers all the facts. A man lost his life, and his family deserves any and every answer they can get about how and why that occurred. I just hope authorities will ensure they get those answers.
